Fram Centre logoFram Centre imageAs most of you may know, our founding director, Jenny Baeseman, has moved on to a new position where she can continue to shape the future of polar research, just in a different way. Jenny is now the Director of the WCRP/SCAR/IASC Climate and the Cryosphere Project which is hosted by the Norwegian Polar Institute - in the Fram Centre here in the fabulous Tromsø, Norway. The FRAM Centre has been partnering with APECS on a number of different things, including the upcoming APECS 5th Anniversary Celebration that will take place at the IPY From Knowledge to Action Conference later this month. The FRAM Centre also sponsored the APECS Research Funding Seminar in January that was part of the Arctic Frontiers Conference and the Young Scientist Forum. We thought that you might want to know a little bit more about this great place where Jenny is now working...
